Books to the ceiling, books to the sky, my pile of books is a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! I'll have a long beard by the time I read them!
This book was absolutely wonderful. I'm becoming such a fan of Juliet Marillier - her novels are like fables. They're interwoven with magic, beautiful prose, and incredibly heartbreaking situations. I love how she can take a well-known fairytale (in this case, the Wild Swans or the 6 Swans) and twist it into something new and amazing, and yet it feels so ancient, like it should have always have been told that way.
I think I may be gushing a little bit, but I would really like to read that again.
